Preparations for Burnham's Christmas lights switch-on gather pace

Burnham-On-Sea's Christmas lights are being installed across the town centre this week ahead of the official switch-on later this month.

75 lights are being installed on lamp posts and buildings by local firm Rob Davey Electricals to add a splash of festive colour to the town's main shopping areas.

The lights are overseen by Burnham Chamber of Trade, whose Chairman, Rhonda Mills, told "Seeing the lights being installed always builds up a little excitement ahead of the switch-on. This year's ceremony will be a special one, given our VIP guest."

Author Terry Pratchett will have the role of 'Grand Illuminator' to perform the switch-on on Saturday November 26th, as first featured here.

The switch-on will be preceded by an afternoon of festive entertainment starting at 2pm outside the Victoria Hotel in conjunction with Burnham Lions Club.
